Abstract

Taking up Freud’s positions on economy and mourning where they depend on the contact they organize with melancholia, Jukić proposes a critical reading of Jacques Derrida’s assemblage of mourning and economy in Specters of Marx: the State of the Debt, the Work of Mourning and the New International. Given the fact that melancholia in Freud calls into question what psychoanalysis wants to define as economy, yet is conspicuously absent from Derrida’s otherwise Freudian configuration of the work-and-economy of mourning in his book on Marx, Jukić addresses Freud’s approach to work in “Trauer und Melancholie” and proposes that work in Marx be analyzed not against mourning but against Freudian and, more importantly still, pre-Freudian configurations of melancholia.
